Time for some new Eyes

It really is a pain in the butt having to get your eyes examined, well supposed to be every year, but sometimes, like me you can’t afford it. It has been 2 maybe even 3 years now since I have had an eye exam or new contacts which is very, very bad. I think the final straw was when I broke my eyeglasses about a month ago which I have had for almost 10 years I guess. Same prescription too so obviously they were old but I usually only where them at bed. What annoys me is the fact that everything costs so much. I actually made sure of doing a health savings plan of sorts this year via my insurance so I could have money set aside to pay for these things but have been realizing it is more trouble than it is worth in terms of putting in the receipts and such.

Now finding a place with cheap glasses is worth it to me because honestly I get tired of getting ripped off when buying new frames. Yes, I really think I do get ripped off because they are so expensive. Zenni Optical has very affordable prices and a wide selection of frames to choose from.

    I always buy cheap sunglasses cause they either break or are lost in a few months anyway.
